A Missouri Military Academy Tradition: Music and Fine Arts
While many schools are reducing or eliminating the arts, MMA continues to invest in these important parts of education. From the performing arts to visual arts, each program allows students to develop their own creativity and to even pursue leadership roles within these activities. The band lives together and operates as Band Company. A cadet drum major and company commander lead their peers under the direction of our director of music, WO2 Freddie Lomas, who came to MMA after retiring from a career as a bandmaster with the Royal Marines Band Service.
The annual holiday Evensong and Festival of the Arts are highlights of the year, showcasing our students' vocal, musical and artistic talents.
